No need. I fixed it in about 30 seconds. Why waste my time hunting for a
kludge sed when I can fix it and gen a patch for anyone else who wants
it? This way, maybe it makes it into the book if the editors think it's

I only search when I need help, not just to see if someone else fixed it
already. Then I post.
